The process of removing and recycling the Viki Lyne II, an abandoned vessel that the federal government towed into Ladysmith Harbour in 2012, has now begun.
The Federal Government is accepting bids for the contract to deconstruct the vessel.

Sheila Malcolmson, MP for Nanaimo-Ladysmith says this tender is an important first step….

The Viki Lyne II has 13,000 litres of oil and solvents onboard.
